IU’s Grand Challenge Featuring Hope Academy

IU’s Grand Challenge Featuring Hope Academy

Indiana University has joined the fight against addiction with IU’s Grand Challenge, IU’s Responding to the Addictions Crisis Grand Challenge where 32 teams of researchers are leading work around this crisis. This research ranges from the stigma of addiction, to treatment and recovery options, prevention measures, public policy and the economic impact of substance use disorders.

The IU Grand Challenge initiative focuses on five areas: data science and analysis; education, training, and certification; policy analysis, economics, and law; community and workforce development; and basic, applied, and translational research.

Hope Academy GPS Coordinator Caroline Hartman was recently featured in a video as part of this effort. In addition to her work at our recovery high school, Caroline is also busy pursuing her Master of Social Work Degree at IUPUI.

Watch the video below to learn more about why Caroline chose this career path and how her unique skillset helps students at Hope Academy. You can also check out the written article here.

Thank you to Indiana University Research for creating this powerful video about our incredible staff and students.
